2013 saw the rise of the phablet, Motorola’s rebirth under Google with the Moto X and Apple’s fingerprint-sensing iPhone 5s. Now that 2014 is here, it’s time to focus on the smartphone flagships we’re likely to see this year. From handsets with curved displays to ones that can potentially scan your iris, 2014 is sure to bring a slew of exciting devices. Some of these smartphones have yet to be confirmed, but here’s a look at what we’re anticipating.
The iPhone 6 rumor mill is churning away. While the iPhone 5 launched in September 2013, Jefferies analyst Peter Misek says the iPhone 6 could launch as soon as June 2014. Reports from Reuters and the Wall Street Journal have said Apple is testing larger 5.7-inch displays for its smartphones. It’s unclear whether or not this display prototype will ever hit the market, but Misek speculates that Apple could release iPhones in different size variants.
